The new eastbound Oakland bridge

Over the last 30 years, since I arrived in Northern California, I’ve crossed the current Oakland bridge countless amount of times.

 

I've seen the bridge break apart during the 1989 Loma Prieta 6.9 magnitude earthquake. Sat through countless hours of slow moving commute traffic. Its bitter sweet to think that in under a year, the old bridge will be gone and replaced by this beautiful single columned bridge, but I am looking forward to driving on this one.
